    Is it safe to ship during cold weather?

    depends. is it worth risking buying frozen lettuce? With most of the united states experiencing freak cold snaps and extreme weather, I would be extremely hesitant to order any kind of plant.

    Sickly Truncata

    yes, the roots are fine. However it is more than likely doomed now that it has been uprooted.

    This was unexpected ...

    looks almost exactly like my pulchella X eriksonea. mine reached maturity wicked fast, and once they start booming, its almost like a forever cycle for me. they pop a new one up after a week of the first one doing down. theyre very pretty.

    Trapa Bicornis - Bat Nut Germination Log

    Right now, there is nothing really notable. The tank is undergoing some sort of algea bloom, and the rosettes are beginning to get some sort of disease. the leaves are developing black spots and dropping off. Im going to need to clean the tank up and get everything presentable again before...

    South window terrarium build, help me design it!

    I have always been a fan of Moss Scape themed terrariums. I would reccomend against nepenthes, because they require far more care than what can be adequately given in a small terrarium. Also, In my experience, they never did as well as I would have liked to see. What i would reccomend -...

    Are these spider mite webs?

    they usually sit in the webs. if you didnt see anything microscopic and moving inside the web, they probably arent mites. look under the leaves. do you see anything red-brown or black? mites if so.

    Trapa Bicornis - Bat Nut Germination Log

    Also Of interest while poking through the internet, I found these. These are Trapa Bicornis Rosaries, Dated from 1870. Note how the seeds have the same face/structure, however they are almost completely missing the horns. Could this be evolution of the species evident in...

    Trapa Bicornis - Bat Nut Germination Log

    Day 16 - New roots are spreading like crazy. every root grows 200 more. these small pins were not here 3 days ago. The stem leading to the rosette. The Bi-lateral spikes along this stem will also soon turn into mechanisms of mass root-ation. I swear they were smaller yesterday...

    Trapa Bicornis - Bat Nut Germination Log

    Update: The Bicornis nut has been moved and transplanted to a 40 gallon tank. After fighting a 3 day battle with Sand, Soil, and waterborne debris, the tank has finally cleared up enough to take pictures. Unfortunately, Pictures from this point on will probably not be as clear as the ones...

    Trapa Bicornis - Bat Nut Germination Log

    The other Seed was removed 2 days ago. I felt after this amount of time, it was a goner. Bubbles had been seen rising from the top hole a day ago after being submerged for nearly a week. In my eyes a good sign of decay or bacterial growth. I removed it and set it into a separate container. This...

    Trapa Bicornis - Bat Nut Germination Log

    It makes me curious, These plants are mostly found in SE Asia, and they are labeled as an Annual. But In a tropical environment I wouldnt think there would be frosts that kill them. Im beginning to wonder. When you type in "Trapa Bicornis" on Image search, you will get atleast 3 or 4 different...

    Trapa Bicornis - Bat Nut Germination Log

    Im really surprised by that too. I didnt expect it to move nearly as quick. Various sites talk about it being a weedy invader, But the information is very unclear, as they also talk about its Relative Trapa Natans taking over ponds and other bodies of water. Its hard to tell which plant is which...

    Trapa Bicornis - Bat Nut Germination Log

    Youre welcome. However, keep in mind these seeds are nearly impossible to find Alive. Its taken me 12 years to find (a) viable one. Im hoping that I can produce more and offer them in the future. Some people say their local Asian markets sometimes offer these around moon festival, because...
